June 1st, 2016 – National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation – Carey, Ohio

On our way to Detroit, we made an unscheduled stop because we saw a sign for the National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation.  The shrine is a minor basilica of the Roman Catholic Church and is devoted to the Virgin Mary.  It is the site of an annual pilgrimage of Roman Catholics (primarily from the Middle East) to mark the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, celebrated the 15th of August of every year.

There is a display below the church of crutches, prosthetics, pictures and letters of people that have been healed after completing the pilgrimage.  It is quite a large display as the shrine has been there since 1875.

Upon arrival in Detroit, we started our Detroit foodie experience at Buddy’s Pizza which was founded in 1946 and has been called one of the five best pizzerias in the United States by the Food Network.   It serves Detroit-style (deep dish square) pizza baked in cast-iron pans.  Our pizza, The Henry Ford (Motor City cheese blend, red onion, seasoned ground beef, smoked bacon, bleu cheese and tomato basil sauce) had the best crust we have ever had on a pizza.

    PLEASE, oh please, campaign with the pizzerias you visit to come to Tucson and bring REAL pizza to the uneducated!
